Episode 56: Alternative Histories in Storytelling. Fair Play?

Welcome to the SciFi Pubcast! Come for a drink but stay for the speculation.

Is the use of alternative histories in storytelling a good thing or is it a cheap literary device use to trigger emotions needlessly?

We try to answer these questions and we talk a lot about the Amazon Prime tv show, The Man in the High Castle, and alternative histories as they relate to the Second World War.

It’s a pretty heavy serious show, this one. You’ll need a good drink for it.

This is the SciFi Pubcast.

Episode recorded on February 2, 2020, and released as a podcast on February 3, 2020. Video version released on YouTube on February 5, 2020.
